- Shiraz (formerly known as “Hermitage”) is an important part of Coonawarra’s history. The acknowledged reputation of Coonawarra for age worthy wines has largely centered on Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Shiraz blends. However, the very early history (in the 1890s) centered on other varieties – particularly Shiraz. Today Wynns is privileged to grow Shiraz on many prime locations within Coonawarra. These vineyards have stories to tell and a history of quality. We select the Black Label Shiraz from the oldest of them including the Undoolya vineyard which was planted in 1894.
